The first single from Lorn's debut album, Nothing Else, Cherry Moon sets the tone for what will follow. Marcos Ortega aka Lorn is the first non-LA resident to be signed to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder roster. It's easy to hear why. His debut album (and the first full length on the imprint) is a remarkable, transcendent achievement. No one who knows anything about him is going to claim that Lorn's life has been easy and nor his his music. Instead it's raw, emotional, angry, beautiful and real.

Press Release :
The first single from Lorn's debut album, "Nothing Else", "Cherry Moon" sets the tone for what will follow. The 23 year old "from the middle of nowhere in Illinois" makes dark, emotional and epic electronic music, his heart firmly on his sleeve.

"Cherry Moon" sounds a little like being slipped a poison and realizing this is your last night on Earth, drums syncopating sweeping synth lines, the listener taken on a dark journey of the soul, by way of sound. Meanwhile, second track, "Tomorrow" is a heavy, bass-laden trip into paranoia, the rhythm taut with off-centre malice. Both display Lorn's mastery of sound and emotion, his ability to inject intensity and a simmering violence into ostensibly downtempo material.
